“Hidden Roman villa”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

You would never know this was here! We went on a walking tour of Desenzano and were taken to the Roman Villa which is hidden amongst the buildings in the town. It was great because we had a guide with us to explain everything. Amazing to see mosaic floors still intact. Very interesting.

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

The tour starts with an informative video and then you are free to follow the paths through the ancient remains. Some of the mosaics are in wonderful condition and they have not been restored in a way that makes them look false. Entrance price very reasonable.

“Fabulous Mosaics”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

Was overawed by the quality of the mosaics which have survived. It's well worth a look round and only a couple of euros to enter.
